Business not appearing in listed area

Hello- I am managing a page for a Mudjacking company in Kansas and I set up the general area he serves customers in. His location can be found here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/All+Star+Mudjacking/@38.8130798,-94.8833085,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x...

 

Only problem is that he isn't appearing in areas such as Lenexa, Overland Park, Olathe etc when you search his business. For example he's not showing as a listed business in the map when searching 'Overland Park Mudjacking' even though that city is within the range I set. What is the best way to fix this, or how do I get this page to show up within those listings?

Hi Corey

The service area range doesn't really correlate to search rankings - it is more a 'nice to have' on a Map so visitors can see if you service the area they are in.

If you'd like your client to rank in areas outside of their physical location (even as a SAB) then you'll need to do some organic SEO work as well as local SEO.

For example. adding more information about each area that you serve on your website (not just as keywords but as actual pieces of content).
